How to Make a Golf Ball Dog

Sherri Osborn
Make this special dog a golf fan can display on a shelf or even used as a paperweight. If the person you are making this gift for does not like golf, you can use small Styrofoam balls that are painted to resemble the balls from their favorite sport such as basketballs, baseballs, or soccer balls.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Glue four of the golf balls together to form a square. Also glue two other golf balls together. Let these all dry.

Lay the grouping of four balls on your work surface and then glue the set of two golf balls on top of them. The four golf balls are the dog's legs, and the two golf balls are the body. Glue the final golf ball on top of one of the body balls. Set aside to dry.

While you are waiting for the glue to dry, cut ears and a tail out of craft foam. Glue them in place on the golf balls. Glue on a set of wiggle eyes and also a pom-pom snout and nose. As a finishing touch glue a piece of ribbon around the dog's neck to look like a collar.
